Woman kicked in face, robbed in Arcadia grocery store parking lot

ARCADIA — Two men kicked a woman in the face and robbed her in broad daylight Wednesday in the parking lot of a grocery store, police said.
The crime occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the 99 Ranch Market, 1300 South Golden West Avenue, Arcadia police said in a written statement.
The woman was walking through the parking lot bringing groceries to her car when she was grabbed from behind, police said.
“A male suspect kicked her in the face and grabbed her purse, running off with a second suspect,” according to the police statement.
It was not clear Friday evening if the woman was hospitalized due to the attack.
The first robber was described as an Asian man in his 40s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, clean-shaven, with short black hair, police said. He wore a purple and red jacket and black pants.
The second robber was described only as male.
Another unsuccessful robbery was reported in the same area late last month.
In that case, a 57-year-old man was pistol-whipped by a robber — described as a white man wearing a dark-colored parka — about 2 p.m. on Dec. 30 in an alley to the rear of the 1300 block of South Golden West Avenue, police said.
The man fought with the robber, officials said, who ultimately fled empty-handed. The victim did not wish to be hospitalized.
It was not clear Friday if Wednesday’s robbery was believed to be connected to the one last month. 
Anyone with information is asked to call Arcadia police detectives at (626) 574-5160.

    Seems like another Bank of America in Fontana got hit by another vicious ex-con crackhead who assaulted female teller while robbing bank equipped with infamous / worthless ‘Bandit Barriers’. Brain dead robber tagged “Alley Oop” aka “Caveman”.

    Also another Bank of America jacked in Sacramento today where doper shot innocent female bank manager in stomach during simple robbery. Looks like the early release of 6,000 convicts in Calif. is upon us.

    “robbed her in broad daylight”

    Is this some type of special daylight that only
    attracts criminals ? What exactly is “broad daylight”
    and how does it compare to plain, ordinary, everyday
    daylight ?

    I really want to know so that on the days when there
    is “broad daylight”, I can stay home.
